In Memory

Stanley “Tookie” Williams, from all of us who have died in so many ways, those of us who have taken our lives, those of us still suffering we stand with you. To reach out from the hell you were incarcerated in to heal, to teach and to prosper we thank you. You kept your word of innocence until your death, and for that we do not admonish you for your acts, we simply do not know the truth and therefore cannot judge you. You refused your last meal and did not want your family to see you executed, a compassionate soul could not do otherwise. A life, any lives whether taken in hate or by governmental decree is a life taken in haste.
